Thalictrum

Thalictrum rochebrunianum is pictured here – and it’s the thalictrum I wanted to bring from my old garden to Washington.  But I dug up a baby Thalictrum aquilegifolium to carefully transport – and now it grows – oh well.

In 1911, garden sage Gertrude Jeckyll wrote: “But good gardening means patience and dogged determination. There must be many failures and losses, but by always pushing on there will always be the reward of success. Those who do not know are apt to think that hardy flower gardening of the best kind is easy. It is not easy at all. It has taken me half a lifetime merely to find out what is best worth doing, and a good slice out of another half to puzzle out the ways of doing it.”
